Cast upon a Christian shore

Living on the margins – existing

Dreaming of a better life – persisting

Reaching out for freedom – groping

Adrift on open waters – hoping.

Washed upon a foreign shore – confused

Dazed, dizzy, destitute – bemused

Children’s pleading tearful eyes – implore

Politicians, pinstriped suits – ignore.

Familiar now upon our plasma screens

Are we so immune to sights obscene

maybe we could do a little more

For all those cast upon a Christian shore.

J. Poet 7 ( )
